Day 2 of Summer break and I love, love, love it. There's just something about summer, that even though the schedules still remain busy and the calendar full, we slow down, and drink in the calm, and soak up the quiet and enjoy the journey that each day has in store for us.
My daughter has started a 4H quilting class and is busy each morning and afternoon creating her first quilt. I love that she's got the passion for stitching just as I do, and look forward to making a quilt together this summer. I've been saving my husband's worn out jeans for years and want to make him a nice, cozy, jean quilt for hunting season.
My card today uses bits of pieces of trimmings that I have on hand, chipboard, flowers, and paper from Prima, and Vanilla Bean scrunched seam binding. I must have summer strawberries on my mind and my mom's strawberry jam, as this card was created in those fresh colors that I love so much.
I love this quote and sure wish that I had realized such important things about myself when I was younger. I think this will be our summer stitching project and with each stitch that my little girl makes, hope that she'll know just how true the words are and remember them throughout her life.
